Reedom Elementary Students Paint Tiles for Mountains Edge Regional Park
Part of our design for the Mountain's Edge Regional Park Design-Build project included an an innovative inclusion of the local community. Yesterday, students from each grade at Reedom Elementary, located across the street from the park painted 350 tiles that will become part of a dedication wall in the construction of the Park.
Pace and our design build team including LGA, JW Zunino and GC Wallace take extraordinary pride in building projects for the community we live in here in Southern Nevada. This was a unique and special way to involve the community in the parks design and construction and to inspire community pride in the facility.
Pace is responsible for the design and construction of the the park which is planned to primarily serve residents within a 5-mile radius, including the Mountain’s Edge, Southern Highlands and Rhodes Ranch communities. Commissioner Susan Brager and Chairman Steve Sisolak represent the residents in the nearby communities and together worked with Nevada’s congressional delegation to obtain $8 million in Southern Nevada Public Land Management Act funding to build the first phase of this regional park. Phase one will include 1.5 miles of paved, ADA-accessible walking trails with several rest stops and about 15 acres of playgrounds, parking, open grass play areas, benches, picnic facilities, shade structures, security lighting and a restroom. The trail will connect to the regional trail system via the existing path along Mountain’s Edge Parkway. Additionally, this project is one mile from a planned portion of the Vegas Valley Rim Trail and its associated trail system.
